The Alex is one of Harvey Gersts recommended pieces. The TC M300 runs around 199.00 and does some nice things.

Here for the gear
 

If you like the Lexicon sound try the MPX 110--or look around --you may be able to find a used MPX 500 for about that price.

I still use my Quadraverb 2 and I think it has some pretty good reverbs for the price...

TRUTH?

re lexicon: i DO like the lexicon sound, i havent found a cheap mpx110, i have looked in the past...no luck on ebay, always seem too expensive...

re alesis quad: i have actually heard great things about it, is that the half rack, that only has presets though? feels like a step down from a lexi

Check the ITR web site, and you'll find more than one listed among the studio gear.

Try looking for Lex LXP1.. should be a little cleaner then the Alex.. I use to own both units about 8 yers ago. FWIW

No, the Quad2 is a full rack unit. You can save custom presets on it so you don't have to use presets exclusively. It is, however, a bitch to program.

The LXP-1 is dark sounding. Maybe you're confusing clean with dark?

"The LXP-1 is dark sounding. Maybe you're confusing clean with dark?" Could be, I was referring to sound and noise, although both units were quite noisy
At any rate I found the Lxp-1 more useful.
